Police say a Texas woman got so fed up babysitting two young girls, she set fire to their bedrooms.
Martha Dreher, 57, is being charged with arson after police say she set fire to two bedrooms of a home in Austin, Texas while the two girls were out of town with their father.
“She said that it was horrible, that the girls — my oldest — had been very disrespectful,” their father, Glenn Williams told ABC News.
Dreher had apparently told investigators that she wanted to quit and was tired of the girls, but denied setting fire to the 90-year-old home.
Dreher was seen on home surveillance driving to the home, and leaving 20 minutes later — when smoke and fire can be seen from the girls’ bedroom, according to police.
The fire was only discovered when Williams’ older son came home. Williams said the fire must have been intentional, because it was contained to the two rooms only.
“It was definitely a vendetta against the two girls,” Williams said.
Dreher pleaded not guilty to arson charges.
